I always think it's great that you can make it to at least one Con each year.

When this was first announced I gave the new code a quick review and 
I remember thinking some of the implementations were a bit off just 
from looking at them. I haven't had a chance to get another look at 
it since. (I want to add pgsql support to my version of the calendar 
before I release a new version.) You might want to look at the 
implementation of pgsql.class.php. For example, his implementation of 
dbSave() does not duplicate the functionality of mysql's REPLACE INTO 
whereas the mssql implementation goes to great pains to do so. Also 
there are some stray echo's and print_r calls in the file from the 
initial release. (I don't know if they've since been removed.)

The permission system is Geeklog's best claim to uniqueness. The 
security aspect, while true, sounds like hype. Microsoft also claims 
to be very security conscious so YMMV trying to call that a feature.
